Great Food and View

Sit outside and enjoy views of the water while you eat incredibly well- prepared Armenian food with fresh ingredients all around. The prices are very fair, and the staff is pleasant and efficient. Ring the bell on the way out to show you loved your meal!

Huge portions of kabobs, rice, and other entrees. Love the atmosphere and location. Look forward to going there again before too long. It's a regular restaurant and good for brunch as well as lunch or dinner.

We love Mediterranean food, this place was great - Very reasonable prices, excellent quality food. We were staying at the little motel adjacent, so decided to eat there for dinner on our first night. Don't pass up the lamb - any of the lamb, but especially the rack - and treat yourself to the Kataif for dessert!!! We loved it... More

I'm a fan of their breakfast and love going down in the mornings followed by a nice walk down at the beach - which is across the street :) This place has been around forever...and for a... More

Superb Mediterranean food right here in southern California. The best mohammara I've had since returning from the Middle East, hands down. Everything here is legit...and good. Do not miss the opportunity to dine here if you are in the area!

We had dinner here after a day at Carlsbad State Beach. We sat out on the patio and enjoyed the food and the view! My husband and I both had the Gyros Platter with unlimited pita bread! The food was very authentic and tasted amazing! It took us back to our honeymoon in Santorini! Our kids (ages 5 & 7)... More

We just had an amazing lunch outside at this great spit in Carlsbad. I had the gyro it was just delicious, the best gyro I ever had was from a street vendor in Paris this was a really close tie! This place has yummy food and we had a great server who was sweet and very helpful!

This restaurant had long been on our radar screen as we drove past it, but we had never actually gotten around to visit and have a meal there until recently. As readers of TA know, we were in for a most pleasant surprise. Both of us enjoy Greek food so it is unusual that it took us so long to... More
